Peaches are in their prime right now. As are avocados. What could be better than a salad that combines the two?

On the Yoga Holiday With Paul retreat we were lucky enough to have fabulous, fresh vegan catering that reminded us all how wonderful it is to eat ripe, seasonal produce.

It inspired me to look out for new ways to enjoy my favourite fruits, hence this fun chilli-infused recipe for peach and avocado salad via Country Living. It’s from a collection of 56 peach recipes, so be sure to check the rest out for even more inspiration!
